Helping chlorine-eating bacteria clean up toxic waste

...der, Cornell professor of microbiology, are now in wide use to detoxify such carcinogenic chemicals as perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE). They do this by removing chlorine atoms from molecules and leaving less-toxic compounds behind. But D. ethenogenes strains work well at some sites ...

Ice Age extinction claimed highly carnivorous Alaskan wolves

...ska and throughout the world. The fossils showed a wide range of haplotypes—greater in fact than their modern counterpart—but there was no overlap with modern wolves. This was unexpected. “We thought possibly they would be related to Asian wolves instead of American wolves because North America and As...
